Two Stars

Dr. Sheikh is my mother's physician. He, himself, is a wonderful doctor for her. He listens to her, and treats her as if she was his mother. He never hurries her and treats her seriously. The Olean office staff that handles his phone calls and appointments ruins anything good that Dr. Sheikh may exhibit. The Salamanca staff is very nice, very helpful; but, again, the Olean staff is extremely rude, disrespectful and negligent in seeing that phone calls are answered; when you are put on hold for a phone call, they hang up. If it wasn't for the fact that my mom trusts Dr. Sheikh, I would not allow her to go there.

Excellent Doctor, Poor Staff

I have seen Doctor Sheikh for many years! I feel that he actually listens to me and goes the extra mile to make sure everything is addressed before I leave his office. His staff on the other hand is horrible and I never have a good encounter with them. He has wrote me referral after referral to see specialist they lose them or take months (or even a year-yes that's happened to me) to set things up. I've noticed they do not file paperwork correctly, lose paperwork regularly, have bad attitudes, sit behind the window laughing and joking instead of dealing with the long line of people before them...the list goes on. I've recently decided to search for another primary doctor because as amazing as he is, I have dealt with enough from his incompetent staff. If he ever replaces them I would go back to his office in a heartbeat!

Good Doctor!

I chose Dr. Sheikh as my Primary Care doctor about a year and a half ago, on the recommendation of a friend. My father is also a patient of his. What I like most is that he actually LISTENS to me. I never feel rushed, and he always takes the time to answer any question I might have--and encourages me to ask more! He is always willing to re-explain anything i didn't understand, draw a picture/diagram, or whatever it takes to address any concerns I might have. It might sound silly but its refreshing to have a Doctor that's so concerned with my level of understanding. Without a doubt, the thing I like the least, is that I sometimes end up sitting in the waiting room for 45 minutes (or more), before I actually see the doctor. That can be a bit frustrating, but by the time my appointment is over, I remember why I keep coming back. What a good doctor! I will keep him as long as he stays in the area!
